(Photos courtesy of Slaters 50/50 other than the root beer float)  Slaters 50/50 ,Pasadena, CA,  labeled the “upper-echelon” burger dining experience and “Home of the Original 50/50 patty” adds ethnic-inspired appetizers, Brunch and Bloody Mary Bar to a new “excesstacy” Relaunch Menu.  The list still includes sandwiches  wings, salads, sides, custom milkshakes, craft beer and desserts.

The new over-the-top “Waken Bacon Brunch”

The  Backyard Furter or 50/50 Furter defines “excess”.  The frankfurter nests inside a poppyseed brioche bun served with relish, chopped onions, ketchup and mustard on the side

The original “best of the best”creations simply combine enormously popular ingredients.  Dessert is no exception and sometimes combines sweet and savory (bacon!).  Darien was impressed with the “Worlds best root beer” float with Marshmallow (below).

The novel combination of  Sweet potato fries with Pumpkin Sauce (shown below) adds a seasonal touch.  The fries dish was,  in the opinion of our veteran restaurant writer, Darien Morea, “the best I ever ate.”

Darien also loved the wings, a specialty of the house. The “uber-friendly” and helpful staff, enthusiastically suggested the wings. And, Darien, noted, “you can be a purist as I am with a no-bun burger wrapped in lettuce” or a paleo or a vegan and still be very happy here.”

Scott Slater founded Slater’s 50/50  in 2009 in Anaheim Hills, California.  The SoCal native was inspired by his a passion for over-the-top burgers, bacon and craft beer.

 

Inspired by the belief that bacon is meat candy, Scott fashioned the original 50/50 patty with 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef. He matched this creation with a long evolving menu of over-the-top food and craft beers.

The concept actually named “meat candy” worked.  Over the past six years, Slater’s 50/50 has won numerous “Best Of” awards.

The beer program has also earned high marks.  Every year Slater’s 50/50 is the only restaurant in the country to tap over 1000 different craft beers.

The new “build-your-own” Bloody Mary Bar, currently exclusive to the Pasadena location, boasts a selection of 28 ingredients, includingfour kinds of bacon (thick cut, BBQ, Sriracha, and rosemary).  Drinks start at the “roll back” price of $8.99 for a Three Olive Martini (Grace of “Grace & Frankie” would approve!)

However, customer-designed burgers remain the star at Slater 50/50 with a long list of ingredients.   Slater makes it fun with the guests  filling out a form at the counter .
